North Seattle/Shoreline to Everett commuter here. Just started at the beginning of August, just about have my commuter bike finished. 33 miles round trip, will be looking for four-seasons (three wet, one dry) gear suggestions. Already have a jacket and fenders (plus the ubiquitous Ortlieb panniers), just need the rest of the gear figured out.

Might look into group rides later on after I get some fitness built up. I already run and race motorcycles, so I'm pretty competitive as it is. Every commute is a sprint, every sprint requires a lap time, and every lap time is compared to the previous. It's a tough life...

Univega Via Activa 300

Hi all!

Retired 65yr old, single, male. Just rode up to Kent, WA from Ashland, OR in June. Don't like riding in big groups. Don't have a car....ride my bike exclusively. Will be here through the winter.....then riding south again........how far?......southern CA.....maybe further. Lol

Would love to find riding buddy(s) to enjoy the trails with here. Thanks much.

Say Hoss, I've got a technium frame set left over from an Ovation I stripped for parts for a couple
other builds. I started to strip the paint. I was gonna polish the aluminum & paint the chromo copper
before rebuilding with upgraded parts, but haven't got 'round to it. If you'd like the frame set, I'm a
little south of P.T. It would be a 'from scratch' build, but sumpin to keep busy during the rain?

Why should you learn to ride with a group? Welcome to the forum, anyway.

great! My area:)

I hail from Oregon, near Roseburg, but am living in Crescent City CA right now. Plan to stay as far as I know. I would love meeting some folks either close to me, or I can also haul my bike to meet people, which is probably what I'll need to do. This is a small town And I'm not close to anything very large. I prefer to go North when I go. I don't care for going further South at all.

Anyway, I'll look around at the topics. I am starting from scratch, although I'm in good shape (walk 16-24 miles a week) but I know bicycling is going to be a whole, other deal. I will have to start out on just logging some hours on my own etc.

I'll be looking not just to meet some folks, but find out what I can about the whole deal or road-trips. I want to eventually camp along the way, carry my gear etc. Being a woman I am anxious to meet folks to ride with. I think even if I was a guy I wouldn't want to ride alone these days But I'm sure plenty of you do denise

Hi Dave,

I am new to riding, and really, I'm just starting to get serious about training for long rides, I mean just to be able to ride a few miles. I like how the towns on the Oregon Coast are laid out. I want to eventually be able to go that route before I try any other areas. I have to just get started riding in and around my small town first though Long way to go before I can really take road-trip

Just keep after it, both the riding and the gathering of gear and you'll get it done.
